Hey all, I came by a super weird behavior in the pulumi-kubernetes provider Why is the
even a part of the state. If it’s the file content - than it may contain secrets. If
is a path to a local file - then it may not (and probably won’t) exist later on (CI/CD, different developers). I also saw that
pulumi up
overrides this parameter, so it make even less sense to me. What is interesting thought, and the reason I’m interested in this parameter from the first place is the fact that
pulumi refresh
fails since it is not being overridden in that scenario and tries to find that file locally - with a horrible undescriptive message
Copy code

    error: Preview failed: failed to read resource state due to unreachable cluster. If the cluster has been deleted, you can edit the pulumi state to remove this resource
In the meantime I found this: Will check if it solves the issue
Still doesn’t work…
pulumi refresh
fails with
